Default Savlon in the USA

Can you buy Savlon skin healing cream in the states? If not is there a local equivalent?

Cheers,

Never seen it and you cant buy TCP either which is the best antispetic even though it stinks like cats pee. Try cold cream for really dry skin.

I've never seen it...have you tried Google...or email the manufacturers and ask for a US supplier?

Failing that there is a huge choice of antiseptic and antibiotic creams in the US...there must be one that fits the bill.

Most Indian import stores sell British goods including TCP, Gripe water, and really good tea.

If you're in "my" part of the state, try here. If you look at the photos, it shows Savlon and there may be TCP - the owner (Lisa) is usually very helpful if you have specific requests.

Oh wow I didnt know that one existed. We normally use www.britishshoppe.com which is in Madison so a bit nearer for us, although they dont do pharma stuff. Will give it a whirl, cheers.

When we imported British goods Savlon was allowed but TCP wasn't.
That was a couple of years ago though

Our local equivalent is called "udder balm". It was originally developed for dairy cows as the name suggests. It was discovered that it worked pretty well on human skin as well.
